  • López Mateos, David (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    In this thesis we perform analyses on simulated data that allow us to demonstrate the sensitivity of the CMS experiment to certain jet quenching observables. In particular, two theoretical scenarios which mimic RHIC data ...
  • Tripathee, Aashish (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
    In this thesis, we use the CMS Open Data to study the 2-prong substructure of jets. We use CMS's particle flow reconstruction algorithm to obtain jet constituents, which we then use to perform various jet substructure ...
  • Joss, Matthew Albert Henry (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    In this thesis, I searched through the Kepler light curves of 14,440 K-star targets for evidence of periodicities that indicate rapid stellar rotation. Many Kepler M, K, and G stars show modulations in flux due to rotating ...
  • Koch, Philip Otto (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1956)
  • Tobin, Jill M (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1985)
  • Guardado-Sanchez, Elmer (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    In this thesis, I designed and built a laser system for the trapping and cooling of ⁶Li atoms. The thesis starts explaining a theoretical background of the necessary laser frequencies for the realization of a Zeeman Slower ...
  • Gharibyan, Hrant (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    This thesis explores two different topics in physics. The first is related to the study of the ER = EPR conjecture that relates the entanglement entropy of a collection of black holes to the cross sectional area of ...
  • Chiu, Christie Shinglei (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    The neutrino experiment MicroBooNE is currently under construction. To expedite the physics output of MicroBooNE, a smaller version of its optical detection system has been implemented. To demonstrate full operability of ...
  • Shields, Brendan John (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    In this thesis, we demonstrate a functioning planar radio frequency, three-rod Paul Trap, loaded with Yb+ ions that have been photoionized from a source of neutral atoms, which were cooled in a magneto-optical trap. Planar ...
  • Chu, Yiwen (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    We demonstrate a procedure for cooling, trapping, and transferring rubidium atoms into a hollow core photonic band gap fiber. The atoms are first collected in a magneto-optical trap (MOT) and then cooled using polarization ...
  • Choi, Sang Hyun (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    The particle localization in ratchet potentials with segments of reverse directions, or kinked ratchets, is computationally studied. Kinks localize a particle on on-off pulsating ratchet potentials, forming stable points ...
  • Dalzell, Alexander M (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
    Despite continued experimental progress, no task has yet been performed on quantum technology that could not also have been performed quickly on today's classical computers. One proposed path toward achieving this milestone, ...
  • Walk, John Reel, Jr (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    Using a spatially-resolving x-ray spectrometer system, toroidal impurity rotation in Alcator C-Mod plasmas was measured. The propagation of the rotational velocity from the edge to the core of the plasma column was measured ...
  • McEwen, Heather K. (Heather Kristine), 1982- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    The Magellan Instant Camera (MagIC) is an optical CCD camera that was built at MIT and is currently used at Las Campanas Observatory (LCO) in La Serena, Chile. It is designed to be both simple and efficient with minimal ...
  • Savcheva, Antonia Stefanova (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    We consider geometrically thin accretion disks around millisecond X-ray pulsars. We start with the Shakura-Sunyaev thin disk model as a basis and modify the disk equations with a magnetic torque from the central neutron ...
  • Seeluangsawat, Paisa, 1980- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2002)
    We attempt to locate magnetic holes from several years of data collected from WIND and ACE spacecraft and use them to study some statistical properties of the magnetic holes.
  • Piso, Ana-Maria (Ana-Maria Adriana) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    We study the magnetic field and the planet-star interactions of super Earths, extrasolar planets with masses between 1 and 10 times the mass of the Earth. We first present a model of the magnetic field of a super Earth, ...
  • Goldberg, Brian, 1979- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2003)
  • Schwartz, Benjamin M. (Benjamin Matthew) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    The human body is composed primarily of dielectric tissue with spatially varying permittivity and conductivity. Traditional MRI does not measure these properties. Instead, the conductivity of the patient is a nuisance, ...
  • Silva, James B. (James Brian) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    The importance of heavy stable charged (HSCP) particles lies in the exploration of extensions to the standard model. Extensions of the standard model attempt to solve current problems in the standard model such as the ...
